by eight a cnn reporter weeks later. for you to testify in our posture did not allow a rapid response, the posture was not there because we did not take into account the threats to the consulate. that is why four americans died. we could have placed forces there, could have had aircraft and other capabilities of short plays the way. so for you to testify before the committee consistent with what estimates is false. the military was appropriately respond to what was an appropriate response since no forces arrived in tel well after the murders took place for obviously your capabilities allow you to be positioned very shortly finally all of this as a result of the footprint. after gadaffi fell many of us made it clear they needed our help, a secure the arms cache, and secure borders, a technical assistance but the light footprint we did not provide for it was almost predictable, almost that bad things would have been in libya. here was a fledgling government, never governed before without assistance we could have provided. i beg you secretary panetta to send a hospital ship to treat the

[inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> we are getting word that former cia director michael hayden is here. a couple of the topics we expect to hear shortly will be how digital media has changed intelligence gathering including computer-generated attacks. >> good evening, ladies and gentlemen. oh, come on. good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

was the network's chief white house correspondent 2009 until 2012 and just last month, left to join cnn as the chief washington correspondent and anchor of an upcoming daily news show. his book, "the outpost: an untold story of american valor", is about a 2009 battle in afghanistan. one magazine described it as perhaps the best afghanistan but to date. please welcome to the savannah book festival, jake tapper. [applause] >> thank you so much. i know sergeant burchfield who is in the book and his family are here. anybody who is in the book over there, there she is, hello. he and his son and i believe everything is set. also, but he is a national guardsman. he was training afghan soldiers and gave his life trying to save an afghan soldier six years ago tomorrow. in any case, anybody who is here whose lives are chronicled in the book or lives of loved ones are chronicled in the book, it means so much when they do turn out much when they do turn out and come to visit us. please come over and introduce yourself after the event. i am not a likely person to have written the war book. i have co
of the consulate by a cnn reporter weeks later. so, for you to testify that our posture did not allow a rapid response, our posture was not there because we didn't take into account the threats to that consulate. and that's why four americans died. we could have placed forces there. we could have had aircraft and other capabilities as short distance away as that base. so for you to testify before this committee that they were consistent with available threat estimates is simply false. that our military was appropriately responsive, what would have been an inappropriate response? since any forces -- no forces arrived there until well after these murders took place and obviously your capabilities allowed you to be positioned to intervene very shortly. and finally, all of this is the result of the so-called light footprint. after gaddafi fell, many of us made it very clear that they needed our help. secure the arms caveps, then help -- help them -- caches, help them secure their borders, but the light footprint we did not provide. so it was almost predictable, almost, maybe not predictable, that
account through payroll deduction. those who participate too often how contribution rate too low. cnn plans need to encourage higher purchasing contributions. i may suggest three easy ways to do so. change the employer match. a typical plan is 50% up to 6% of pay. 6% are marching to plan consider and notched a 30% to 10% of pay would cost the employer for every employer at or about 10% in this case a financial incentives for 10% of pay but no increase cost to the employer. to encourage employers to adopt a higher contribution rate under enrollment. the widespread adoption following the act of 2006 has been a clear victory for public policy at the typical default contribution rate is 3% of falls well short of what is needed to save. we know from extensive research and the employees persist at the default. the solution is
solutions. on cnn, defense secretary panetta, secretary dempsey, and former labor secretary elaine chow. bob schieffer talking with nfl commissioner roger goodell. these are brought to you as a public service by the networks and c-span. beginning at noon with nbc's "meet the press." 1:00, this week. 2:00, fox news sunday. and finally at 4:00 p.m. eastern, face the nation from cbs. listen to them on c-span radio, 90.1 fm radio, nationwide on xm 119, on your smartphone or on- line to c-spanradio.org. >> john mccain's 2000 campaign when he ran for president is the most memorable campaign of any that i have ever covered or been around. we will never see it again. george w. bush had all of the face cards, the republican governors, the backing of all of the money. john mccain went and held 114 town meetings and stayed until every question was answered. you see the light bulb going on over these heads. we will never get a patient's bill of rights until my party is not owned by the insurance companies. there was this refreshing candor. he was totally open to the press. there was a sort of welcoming
about the lack of security, including a message found in the rubble by a cnn reporter weeks later. for you to testify that are posture did not allow a rapid response -- are posture was not there because we did not take into account the threats to that consulate. that is why damn americans died. we could have placed forces there. we could have had -- four americans died. we could have placed forces there. for you to testify before this committee that their worth consistent and available threat estimates -- that there were consistent and available threat estimates is false. what would have been an inappropriate response? since no forces arrive there until well after these murders took place, and obviously your capabilities allowed you to be positioned to intervene very shortly. finally, all of this is a result of the so-called light footprint. after qaddafi fell, many of us made it very clear that they needed our help. secure the arms caches, help clear their borders. the light footprint, we did not provide. it was almost predictable, almost. bad things were going to happen in libya
heard both former c.i.a. director michael haden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and say that it is now changed and that
question. i was on cnn about two weeks ago on a sunday morning show. and she asked us about drone strikes. quite surprise demri. stan is the former commander of special operations. we said threrp lawful and effective and appropriate but we are in a safer position as a nation now. the threat of imminence is not quite is same as we perceived it in 2002 or three or four. and therefore the secondary evkets of this kind of activity may now begin to outweigh the sought after primary effects which is to reduce the level of threat. >> the political blow back. >> the political blow back where it's happening and political blow back with our allies. political blow back to what examples we are giving to the rest of the planet. >> should with be doing less of this? >> my view is this is always a balance and these are individual operational decision that is my sense is the secondary and third effects are beginning to have a lot more throw weight than they did. >> the new secretary of defense, the president's new national security team. >> don't throw this tool away, keep it in your kit and use it wisel
of cnn who together have a wonderful interview with clinton yesterday. thank you. over to elise. [applause] we have a lot of distinguished guests in the audience. the deputy chief of mission for the embassy of lebanon. a lot of people who care about syria and looks to be a lively discussion this evening. in august, 2011 secretary of state hillary clinton called for the president bashar al-assad to step down for the sake of the syrian people. at that time about 2,000 people were killed. today that number of u.n. estimates has risen to more than 60,000 syrian is dead, hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to turkey and jordan and iraq pleasing burdens on those countries, close to 2 million more, more than half have been displaced inside syria. what started as a brave stand has moved into a civil war with opposition forces becoming more radicalized, some of them would say infiltrated by extremist forces with links to al qaeda. the conflict threatens to destabilize the entire region and become a battleground for the proxy war some might say of competing interest. the and ratio
" and a cnn contributor. after each one speaks we'll take questions from the audience. finally, please form all statements in the form of a question. thanks. >> thank you. it is a pleasure to be here tonight. it is the earlier i've been out of the office. what should a supporter of free markets and enterprise think of immigration? what should a good policy be? i think this answer -- the answer to this question is simple and straight forward. now, legal immigration, whether through a program or permanent migration it should be easier for people throughout the world, especially for workers. i think this conclusion is easy and simple to reach. i think it -- it doesn't matter what basis you approach it from. whether you like free markets because of toldtarian arguments. i think the answer is all the same. now, let's give you a setup. of all the markets in the world that has to do with the flows and goods enservice of the cross borders, labor is the most reing strictive of all of them. the labor market is one of the most important of them. free marketers know that deregulating, allowing more com
qaeda, unquote. one many explained to me over tea in the capital last month. another told cnn after a failed strike, quote, i would not be surprised if 100 tribesmen joined al qaeda as a result of the latest drone mistake, unquote. rather than promote the author of a failing strategy, we need a c.i.a. director who will halt the agency's creeping militarization and restore it to what it does best. i would say what it did best at one time. collecting human intelligence. it's an intelligence agency, not a lightweight version of joint special operations command. and until america wins the intelligence war, missiles will continue to hit the wrong targets, kill too many civilians, and drive young men into waiting arms of our enemies. without accurate on the ground intelligence, our policies will fail, george w. bush launched two major ground invasions, and mr. obama has tried several smaller wars, neither strategy has worked. in yemen, which has been the laboratory for mr. obama's shadow wars, aqap has more than tripled in size after three years of drone strikes. when the united states st
, that is a critical priority. we have heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he add the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-te
. [indiscernible] >> we will start with cnn's gary, thank you. the vast majority of top security officials in the previous administration supported army circassian the rebels. were you briefed about this plan when you were in the senate, and what do you think about the plan proved the you think is time to start army the rebels? you think the mixed messages coming from iran, the foreign minister, and the president have said they would be open to talks with iran. the foreign minister had some nice, it's to say about you, but the supreme leader said direct talks are not possible. do you think there are prospects for a deal, and the you have a plan to move this forward? >> that was three questions. >> 1 + one does not equal two. >> b well done, i am impressed. [indiscernible] i beg your pardon? i am taking stock every day. next time i will ask you to ask have a question. let me answer that. the first part of your question, let me say that i do not know what the discussions were in the white house and who said what, and i will not go backwards. this is a new administration now. i am a new secre
